N.J. lawmakers approve bill requiring for-profit hospitals to post financial records
The bill (A2143) passed the Senate in March and now heads to Gov. Chris Christie, who will decide whether to sign it. Any hospital that seeks a share of the state charity care funds to treat uninsured patients would have to disclose sources of income, business holdings and salaries of its top officers along with other information that nonprofit companies must file with the Internal Revenue Service, according to the bill. The state Department of Health and Senior Services would collect and post the information on its website.
